Allow users in censored countries to use your network connection to access the Tor network.

Help people in censored countries bypass censorship by running the Snowflake extension If you want to help people in censored countries access the Internet without restrictions, consider installing and running the Snowflake extension. Once you install it and enable it, there's nothing else you need to do. Once the snowflake icon turns green, this means a censored user is connecting through your extension to access the Internet! The only prerequisite to install this extension is that the Internet in your country is not heavily censored already. There is no need to worry about which websites people are accessing through your Snowflake extension. Their visible browsing IP address will match their Tor exit node, not yours. If you live in a censored country If you live in a censored country and want to connect to a Snowflake extension, you do not need to install a separate application to connect to a Snowflake proxy and bypass censorship. It is a circumvention feature embedded within existing apps. Currently Snowflake is available inside Tor Browser on Desktop and Android, Onion Browser on iOS, and Orbot on Android and iOS. If you have downloaded and installed any of these apps, and they are censored in your country, you can bypass the censorship by activating Snowflake through these apps' settings page. Support channels If you encounter issues while trying to connect to Tor using Snowflake, the Tor support channel can be reached on Telegram ( and email ( You can also browse the Tor Support Portal ( and the Tor Project Forum ( for answers.

I have finally identified this extension as the cause of some serious performance issues that my computer was having.  Massive, excessing hard drive activity, dragging everything else down.   The intent is good, but not worth the adverse effect on my computer's performance.
